Every Empire Leaves Afghanistan
The U.S. occupation of Afghanistan will not last forever. All empires end up leaving.
The Obama Administration and NATO are seeking a treaty that would keep U.S. troops in Afghanistan indefinitely as "support." But a recent CBS/N.Y. Times poll found that 80% of the U.S. public wants all troops home by the end of 2014 or sooner (47% want all troops home sooner).
There's a bill in the House of Representatives that would speed it up to RIGHT NOW. The bill has 70 cosponsors. Let's add 30 more.
Afghanistan is the longest U.S. war ever. Even President George W. Bush created a treaty that required all troops to leave Iraq, and the Iraqis compelled Obama to abide by it. The question now, crazy as it may seem, is whether we can end a war without Bush.
Let's show Obama that we're still for peace.
Tell our government the time to end this war is now!
